Hackster Heroes: Nathan Seidle
Nathan Seidle is the founder and CEO of SparkFun Electronics in Boulder, Colorado.
We’ve got about 2,400 products on our website. Nearly 700 of them are designed by our engineers, open source, and made right here in Boulder,
but what does ‘Country of origin’ really mean?
For example, there are wafers that are fabbed in Boston, diced in Germany, tested in Mexico, DIP packaged in Taiwan and distributed from the UK. There is no one place things are made. We’re proud to build over 100,000 SparkFun products a month right here in Boulder, but it’s clear we’re a very small part in a global market
